What Out for the Grinch that Steals Your Christmas Gifts Right from Under Your Nose!

You’ve finished your online shopping, your gifts have shipped and you’re waiting for them to arrive – but some Grinch decides to ruin your holiday. We’re talking about how to stop porch pirates in their tracks.

Every year millions of people have packages stolen right from their doorsteps.  So what’s the best way to stop them?

  • Require a signature.  When your shopping cart is full and it’s time to choose your shipping details, take a moment to check “signature required.” A contact-free way to sign may be available through major package delivery services. You can request delivery confirmations, too.
  • Give specific delivery instructions. Many shippers will let you specify where to leave packages — maybe in your back yard, or even redirecting them to a trusted neighbor’s address, if you won’t be home.
  • Install motion activated lights.  Outdoor lights with a motion sensor might make your home a lot less attractive to would-be thieves, making them much more visible than they’d likely want to be.
